Nice short trip - 1.5 hours - brilliant for couples, ground or families - you have free reign of the boat to wander around front and back - it's very exciting for the kids to go up to the front and feel the wind in their faces but it's much colder on the water than on the land so do... More

An unique experience within the beauty that is Connemara. The commentary was very informative and the chocolate brownies delicious.

Booked a 2.30 departure and had time for a good lunch at Hotel Leenane, 5 minutes away. Having walked several coastal and mountain routes in the area over many years it was... More

Decided to go on the boat trip despite the wind and overcast weather. I asked the captain whether out on the water it would be choppy and he replied that compared to the drive on the roads in the area the boat ride will be smooth as a dream. He was right. We were only twelve guests on board so... More

We went on one of the boat trips over the Easter weekend. It was a family day out of ages ranging from 9 to 60+ and we had a great time. Particularly the staff on the boats was so friendly and accommodating. They let the kids go into the cabin with the captain, and gave them colouring sheets. You can... More

Had an amazing time on the fjord tour - great staff, lovely scenery and a school of friendly dolphins came to swim with the boat and jump around!! Can't recommend this enough - the commentary is very educational and interesting and the views are sensational :)
